I hear you I loved the small body though, but it would be nice to have a hybrid even, with a condensor mic inside. The hard thing is for the cost you can buy the fishman pedals and have fun with a cheaper guitar. I think the problem with the original variax acoustic was that it is like an electric guitar, not something you hold onto long term because it isn't going to get more full sound. At least I think that might have been a reason. The biggest thing for me is the bleed through. When I am doing open tunings, unless I am wearing IEM I hear the tuning of the strings.
But it is doubtful that another acoustic will come out. People don't like change. They like name brands and stuff they know. Modeling is always inferior to the real thing people think. Even with the electrics we see the hybrids because people want pick ups. I've even seen a 700 with fake pick up mounts because the owner had to have them on to make it feel like a real guitar.
tis my rant
